about the financial crisis. we saw today elizabeth warren who is a darling of the liberals in the democratic party, brought in not exactly to run this new consumer agency, but kind of a special advisor to the president so she kind of cannot escape confirmation scrutiny, who is she, what does she bring to this, and to what degree was this decision to bring her in a political one? >> i think it was very political in the following respect. they passed -- consumer protection was one of the hallmarks of the democratic approaches to financial regulation. though interestingly, hank paulson, the bush treasury secretary when he recommended financial regulation a couple years ago had a consumer protection component to it as well. elizabeth warren has been a consumer advocate for years as a college professor and someone who has spoken out and been on the congressional oversight panel for the tarp program, trying to see how that's been administered. and she's somebody who is going to stand up that agency. they face a huge fight. republicans are fighting the administration across the bo

because as only an advisor to president obama, elizabeth warren does not have to be confirmed by the u.s. senate. the president says warren will help him set up the new agency and choose its first leader. some senators say anyone with that much power should have to answer to lawmakers first. >> this is like the czar of all czars. let's talk about process. the fact is that this person, the process of circumvented because the president knows this person cannot be confirmed. >> reporter: and while the president was careful not to call her a czar, the rules she is creating could make her the new wizard of wall street. tom fitzgerald, fox5 news. >>> lady gaga urging her fans to call their senators to ask them to repeel the don't ask, don't tell law. the law prevents gays from serving openly in the military. on video she tried to call her senators but couldn't get through. she says she won't stop trying until she can deliver this message. >> my name is stephanie joe angelina jermanata. i'm asking to repeal don't ask don't tell and oppose john mccain's shameful fill buster. >> the senator is

it official today naming elizabeth warren to help start up the new powerful consumer bureau. she's the darling of the left, but conservatives were ready to fight her nomination tooth and nail. the president is moving to effectively sidestep the senate with the way he is handling this announcement. mike is live on the white house north lawn. so she's going to be temporarily advising the president. explain, this mike. >> reporter: well, she could serve conceivably about midway into 2012. that's the way this is set up in the law if you look at the language involved here. you're right, if they make it official today, savannah, kind of, she's being appointed in this advisory role to sidestep the senate confirmation process that would have been problematic. she's essentially walking in the side door of this house that she herself created, her own brainchild. this consumer protection bureau that was part of that fraud financial reform package that passed congress and was signed by the president earlier this year. now, earlier today, elizabeth warren posted a blog on the white house website where she
announcing elizabeth warren will oversee the creation of the new consumer protection agency. she won't lead the organization. instead, she's been appointed to get the agency up and running off the ground. >> three years ago she came up with an idea for a new independent agency with one simple overriding mission, standing up for consumers and middle class families. that agency will soon become a reality. the consumer financial protection bureau, which was one of the central aspects of financial reform, will empower all americans with the clear and concise information they need to make the best choices, the best financial decisions for them and their families. >> the president speaking just a short time ago. mike, this was pretty expected that elizabeth warren was probably going to get this position. but explain the difference in the title here. >> well, she's a special adviser. she's not nominated to be the director of the new agency that she had thought of some time ago that became a reality as a result of the financial reform package that passed earlier this year. many people we

elizabeth warren will launch the new consumer protection bureau. she's an excellent choice for the job. i honestly couldn't think of a better one. the problem is the job itself, too small and doesn't actually address the problem. the bottom line, as we talk about so much with the financial regulation debate this summer is in a the consumer financial protection agency is more about easing our emotional anxiety about dealing with oh, my goodness can people read the forms. but does absolutely nothing to stop the on going structural problem of allowing our financial institutions to take your retirement money and gamble with it to their winnings in too big to fail firms. which is a brilliant way to steal money. that is what we're dealing with at this moment in this country. joining us now, a couple of different people. i'm not sure who's going to be here first. but i think i have senator sanders. hello, senator. how are you? >> i'm great. how are you? >> i'm good. i want to split this into two different things. one, elizabeth warren and her role at the cfpa. she, obviously, is the person you h

. and yet you haven't named a head. is elizabeth warren still a leading candidate? and if not, are you worried about some sort of senate hurdle for her confirmation? thank you. >> this is a great opportunity to talk to the american people about what i do think is going to be hugely helpful to middle- class families in the years and decades to come, and that is an agency that has been set up, an independent agency, whose sole job is to protect families in their financial transactions. so if you are getting a credit card, we are going to have an agency that makes sure that that credit card company can't jack up your rates without any reason -- including on old balances. and that could save american consumers tens of billions of dollars just in the first couple of years. if you are out there looking for a mortgage -- and we all know that part of the problem with the financial crisis was that folks were peddling mortgages that were unstable, that had these huge balloon payments that people didn't fully understand well. now there's going to be some oversight in terms of how mortgages are sh
